Odam Barton marked. Comparison with the Tithe Map shows the basic plan of the farmstead to have changed little, although several buildings have been added. A horse engine house is shown on the rear of the barn in the south-east corner.

A number of the historic farm buildings appear to be still extant, although the site of the horse engine house now appears to be silos.
